Vivid ruby. Complex aromas of red and dark berries, Indian spices and violet, with slow-building smokiness. Taut and focused on the palate, offering lively bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors that pick up weight with air. Juicy and nicely concentrated Cotes du Rhone with strong finishing punch and lingering spiciness.
Light-bodied with plenty of herbaceous strawberry and sweet cherry fruit, it offers a pleasant mouthfeel as well as good texture. The word "Flaco" in Spanish means "dude," and this is a wine that all dudes can enjoy over the next year.
